Natural Gas

Natural gas prices moved lower on Monday, removing some of the premium that was incorporated into the price ahead of Hurricane Barry. The storm generated a reduction in production as many drills were shut in, but production will quickly go back to normal as the disruption to installation was very limited and will not effect future production. LNG exports increased week over week ahead of the storm which should help buoy demand
